Writing meme

About the writing meme that's going around:

Chapter one of Skirmish: Douglas Adams
Chapter two of Skirmish: Stephen King
Chapter three of Skrimish: H.P. Lovecraft.
Chapter four of Skirmish: Raymond Chandler

All four chapters: Douglas Adams (the chapters run about 10k words each)

Chapter one of Cast in Ruin: Ray Bradbury
Chapter two of Cast in Ruin: Johathan Swift (sic)
Chapter three of Cast in Ruin: Douglas Adams
Chapter four of Cast in Ruin: Dan Brown

All four chapters: Ray Bradbury (the chapters run around 5k words each)

… but smaller sample sizes (a few paragraphs) tend to all be Dan Brown, with one Stephen King.

That would be an interesting collaboration.

My longer blog posts tend to come out as James Joyce, and the shorter ones as Stephen King. I wish it gave more detailed analysis, though, instead of just spitting out a name. Actually, it would be nice even just to know what the range of possible answers is.

I wish it would give a more comprehensive reasoning on the algorithm as well -- but size of sample really does tend to change the response.
